Re: First movie back after Covid shutdowns?

Last movie was The Invisible Man in March 2020.

First movie back was The Dry in May 2021, at my local art house theater, only because they checked vaccination cards and required masks. Only two other people in the theater.

Then nothing until F9 in July. Since them, Iíve been going regularly, but avoiding showings with crowds.

Last: Birds of Prey (2020)
First: Tenet (2020)

I believe there was a 7-month gap between my viewings of those films.

I was going to make No Way Home my first movie in the theaters, but it ended up being a matinee of Free Guy because a friend I hadn't seen in a while was in town.... Then I ended up seeing Ghostbusters: Afterlife before Spider-Man too.

I think Fantasy Island was my last one.

I believe Black Widow was my first one back.

My last one was “1917” (for over a year I got some mileage out of a joke that I hadn’t seen a movie in a theater since 1917).

First back was “No Time To Die” in October.

Re: First movie back after Covid shutdowns?

Prior to the pandemic, the last movie I'd seen theatrically was IT: Chapter Two. My son and I were going to the movies pretty frequently at that time. With the holidays and winter approaching, we'd usually slow down some until ramping back up in the spring. That never really happened for us in 2020. As time passed and theaters started to reopen, there were a few movies here and there that I wanted to see but my motivation to go out still wasn't there.

I've been on vacation from work this week, and decided it was time to finally go back to my local multiplex. I've enjoyed Ti West's movies, so X was something that I really wanted to catch before its run was over. My son was dying to see The Batman. So, yesterday, we ended up making it a double feature and saw both of them. Seats were chosen prior to entry, so everyone was spaced out really well. I'd definitely like to make going to the movies a regular activity for us again.

i'm gonna change my answer since SP: NWH was a rented out screen. my first would have to be Top Gun: Maverick (which would make it a solid 2yrs, 3mos since last theater experience). opening day, real theater, real people. it was cool and i will def see Thor 4 next month.
